As some Serbian and Kosovo politicians mull swapping territories between the two countries, members of the the ethnic Albanian minority in southern Serbia say they would rather see both countries inside the EU.
"This is not something new. This is a story that circles both in southern Serbia and Kosovo," Nedzad Beljulji, the owner of TV Spectra in Bujanovac, in southern Serbia, said.
BELGRADE - Serbian FM Ivica Dacic on Monday condemned a statement by Albanian PM Edi Rama about unity of Albania and Kosovo, noting that the EU and Western states were "sticking their heads in the sand" in the face of a Greater Albania policy.
Dacic said it was the biggest threat to peace and stability in the region.
Kosovo has celebrated a decade since declaring independence, a moment of pride for its ethnic Albanian majority, although sovereignty remains fiercely contested by Serbia.
Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin says the process of stopping "Greater Albania" (Albanian nationalist expansionist project) must begin in Kosovo and Metohija.
Speaking at a round table dedicated to Serbia's "internal dialogue on Kosovo," Vulin said that his country should not allow "Greater Albania" to be created on its borders, and let others draw those borders.
